Employment Practices Liability Insurance

With its extensive insurance coverage experience, Berger Kahn is uniquely positioned to assist clients with the risk management and insurance coverage aspects of their employee relations. Our employment team includes attorneys who know insurance coverage inside and out. We can often help clients identify coverage and obtain benefits that help reduce the net cost of litigation.
